The White Top

Summer is closely upon us (finally!).  It’s time to start getting out the shorts and summer essentials.  The main summer essential for me is always a white top.  White tops are a summer staple. Just about every brand had its own version. But let’s face it, in the sea of white tops available, it’s actually hard to find one that suits. They are either too sheer, too boxy, too stiff, too something. For an item that seems easy enough to find, it can be quite the opposite.
I look for 3 types of white tops to incorporate into my summer style.  The faithful tee, the button down, and the feminine top.  The tee is a great layering essential.  The summer nights can sometimes be cool.  Adding a great linen jacket over a white t-shirt is so effortlessly chic.  The button down can go from day to night and work to weekend.  This looks great under a blazer as well.  The feminine top can consist of ruffles, eyelet, or linen.  Whichever style you prefer.  Each top is versatile enough to go with jeans, shorts, pants or skirts.  I like to be able to mix and match my wardrobe without too much thought.
This top from Alexis clothing has all the boxes checked for a great summer top- it’s light weight, just slightly sheer, and flowy. It’s fun feminine details like the ruffled trim and attached cape is so unexpected. The silk material and free flowing silhouette are so elegant.  I love that this can be just as stunning dressed down with jeans as it can elevated with a pair of linen trousers or a pencil skirt.
I love reading into the inspiration behind brands that speak to me.  Alexis is a mother daughter duo.  Their designs are inspired by their travels, visited cultures and inspiring architecture.  The line is full of modern lines with a hint of vintage nostalgia.  They do ruffles and lace like no other.  Alexis clothing speaks to a strong, confident woman who is not afraid of taking charge. If you haven’t checked them out already, you should definitely do so.
